Designed to meet the needs of remote workgroups, satellite offices, and mobile users, the Cisco Aironet 350 Series Workgroup Bridge brings the freedom and flexibility of wireless connectivity to any Ethernet-enabled device. The workgroup bridge quickly connects up to eight Ethernet-enabled laptops or other portable computers to a wireless LAN (WLAN), providing the link from these devices to any Cisco Aironet Access Point (AP) or Wireless Bridge. The Cisco Aironet 350 Series Workgroup Bridge offers:
Support for a Variety of Applications
Any Ethernet-ready device, including printers, copiers, PCs, point-of-sale devices, or monitoring equipment, can be placed directly at the point of work using the workgroup bridgewithout the expense or delay of cabling. For temporary classrooms or temporary office space, the workgroup bridge provides flexible, easy network access for up to eight devices through the use of a standard eight-port Ethernet hub (see Figure 1). Equipment can be easily moved as workgroups change in number or location, lowering facilities costs.
Leading Throughput and Range
With a full 100-milliwatt (mW) of transmit power and the best receive sensitivity in the industry, the Cisco Aironet 350 Series Workgroup Bridges provide the longest range and best reliability available for wireless clients. Advanced signal processing in the Cisco Aironet 350 Series helps manage the multipath propagation often found in office environments. Intelligent filtering addresses ambient noise and interference that can decrease network performance. Building upon Cisco leadership in WLAN performance, Cisco Aironet 350 Series Workgroup Bridges provide the greatest throughput available so users can enjoy virtually the same connectivity they gain from wire-line connections. Based on direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) technology, the Cisco Aironet 350 Series Workgroup Bridge operates in the 2.4 GHz band and supports data rates up to 11 Mbps.
